Collins & Hayes: How this British sofa manufacturer is crafting the ultimate in luxury

There’s nothing like crashing out on the sofa after a long day, so choosing a sofa that you love coming home to is important. Whether you love to curl up or stretch out, a sofa needs to provide endless comfort, fit all yours and your family’s needs and of course look beautiful doing so. With that in mind, we put the spotlight on esteemed British furniture makers Collins & Hayes.

Expertly crafting luxurious furniture and handmade sofas since 1870, Collins & Hayes are a quintessentially British brand with a rich history. Their brand message is simple; understated luxury, sublime comfort and beautiful detail which is why all aspects of design are carefully considered. From the goose feather back cushions to the hardwood frames and solid oak feet, every piece is distinguished by impeccable design and hand-stitched detailing to ensure that it is as beautiful inside as it is out.
